Schizophrenia

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder often characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, auditory hallucinations, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and lack of motivation. Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the person’s reported experiences.
SIGN AND SYMPTOMS
Individuals with schizophrenia may experience hallucinations (most reported are hearing voices), delusions (often bizarre or persecutoryin nature), and disorganized thinking and speech. The last may range from loss of train of thought, to sentences only loosely connected in meaning, to speech that is not understandable known as word salad. Social withdrawal, sloppiness of dress and hygiene, and loss of motivation and judgment are all common in schizophrenia. There is often an observable pattern of emotional difficulty, for example lack of responsiveness. Impairment in social cognition is associated with schizophrenia, as are symptoms of paranoia. Social isolation commonly occurs. Difficulties in working and long-term memory, attention, executive functioning, and speed of processing also commonly occur In one uncommon subtype, the person may be largely mute, remain motionless in bizarre postures, or exhibit purposeless agitation, all signs of catatonia. About 30 to 50% of people with schizophrenia fail to accept that they have an illness or their recommended treatment. Treatment may have some effect on insight. People with schizophrenia often find facial emotion perception to be difficult.
TREATMENT
There is no direct correlation of Schizophrenia in ayurveda it can be correlated to number of diseases in ayurveda like MADA, VATAJA UNMADA, PITTAJA UNMADA, KAPHAJA UNMADA. So depending on the symptoms of vata, pitta and kapha appear the treatment should be planned in tikshana basti, tikshana virechana and tikshana vamana respectively.

Multiple Sclerosis

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Multiple sclerosis (MS), also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata, is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems. MS takes several forms, with new symptoms either occurring in isolated attacks (relapsing forms) or building up over time (progressive forms). Between attacks, symptoms may disappear completely; however, permanent neurological problems often occur, especially as the disease advances.
While the cause is not clear, the underlying mechanism is thought to be either destruction by the immune system or failure of the myelin-producing cells. Proposed causes for this include genetics and environmental factors such as infections. MS is usually diagnosed based on the presenting signs and symptoms and the results of supporting medical tests.
There is no known cure for multiple sclerosis. Treatments attempt to improve function after an attack and prevent new attacks. Medications used to treat MS, while modestly effective, can have adverse effects and be poorly tolerated. Many people pursue alternative treatments, despite a lack of evidence. The long-term outcome is difficult to predict, with good outcomes more often seen in women, those who develop the disease early in life, those with a relapsing course, and those who initially experienced few attacks. Life expectancy is on average 5 to 10 years lower than that of an unaffected population.
Multiple sclerosis is the most common autoimmune disorder affecting the central nervous system.
A person with MS can have almost any neurological symptom or sign, with autonomic, visual, motor, and sensory problems being the most common. The specific symptoms are determined by the locations of the lesions within the nervous system, and may include loss of sensitivity or changes in sensation such as tingling, pins and needles or numbness, muscle weakness, very pronounced reflexes, muscle spasms, or difficulty in moving; difficulties with coordination and balance (ataxia); problems with speech or swallowing, visual problems (nystagmus, optic neuritis or double vision), feeling tired, acute or chronic pain, and bladder and bowel difficulties, among others.Difficulties thinking and emotional problems such as depression or unstable mood are also common.Uhthoff’s phenomenon, a worsening of symptoms due to exposure to higher than usual temperatures, and Lhermitte’s sign, an electrical sensation that runs down the back when bending the neck, are particularly characteristic of MS.The main measure of disability and severity is the expanded disability status scale (EDSS), with other measures such as the multiple sclerosis functional composite being increasingly used in research.
There is no direct correlation of the disease in ayurveda so symptomatic treatment should be given depending on the symptoms which appear in the patient.

Gastric and Duodenal Ulcer

Monday, February 29th, 2016

A peptic ulcer is an open sore. They are usually found in the lining of the stomach, esophagus, or upper small intestine. Ulcers that occur in the stomach are called gastric ulcers. Ulcers that occur in the upper area of the small intestine, which is called the duodenum, are called duodenal ulcers.

Causes:-
• Naturally occurring stomach acids may also bring on peptic ulcers.
• Stress and spicy foods were the main causes of these ulcers.
• Repeated use of aspirin or other over-the-counter no steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may also cause these ulcers.
• Experts believe that alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine use contribute to the prevalence of the ulcers.
• Cancer patients can be at risk for these ulcers when undergoing radiation treatment or chemotherapy. The ulcers can sometimes go hand in hand with other infections.
• Young men are more likely to experience duodenal ulcers, while older women have more gastric ulcers.

Symptoms:-
Gastric and duodenal ulcers usually cannot be differentiated based on history alone, although some findings may be suggestive. Epigastric pain is the most common symptom of both gastric and duodenal ulcers. It is characterized by a gnawing or burning sensation and occurs after meals—classically, shortly after meals with gastric ulcer and 2-3 hours afterward with duodenal ulcer the usual some patients also report a feeling of fullness.
Many people who suffer from peptic ulcers experience nausea. Vomiting often helps. Sometimes, however, the vomit can be bloody. Other symptoms include bloody or tarry stools, weight loss, and chest pain.

Diagnosis:-
To check for peptic ulcers, doctors look for the presence of the H. pylori bacteria when performing tests. They can find it by analyzing a patient’s blood, stool, or breath.
It is also necessary to conduct an endoscopy (insertion of a camera with light) down the throat to examine the upper digestive system. This can help doctors understand the type of ulcer and whether it may be malignant. They can also see if the ulcer has perforated the stomach, which can be a very serious complication.

Treatment:-
Antibiotics to kill the H. pylori bacteria.
There are medications that stop acid production. Proton pump inhibitors, omeprazole, and others help people whose ulcers come from taking too much aspirin.
There are also medications that heavily coat the stomach’s lining. These make peptic ulcers less likely to occur. In mild cases, an over-the-counter antacid can provide temporary relief.
Sometimes surgery is needed, usually if an ulcer is bleeding, is cancerous, or has caused a perforation.

Food Poisioning

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Food poisoning is a common, yet distressing and sometimes life-threatening problem for millions of people. Food borne illness, more commonly referred to as food poisoning, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. People infected with food-borne organisms may be symptom-free or may have symptoms ranging from mild intestinal discomfort to severe dehydration and bloody diarrhea. Depending on the type of infection, people can even die as a result of food poisoning.
Causes:-
• Bacteria:- E. coli, listeria, salmonella, Campylobacte,r C. botulinum (botulism)
• Parasites Toxoplasma
• Viruses- Norovirus, Sapovirus, Rotavirus, and Astrovirus
How Does Food Become Contaminated?
Pathogens can be found on almost all of the food that humans eat. However, heat from cooking usually kills pathogens on food before it reaches our plate. Foods eaten raw are common sources of food poisoning because they don’t go through the cooking process.
Occasionally, food will come in contact with the organisms in fecal matter. This most commonly happens when a person preparing food doesn’t wash their hands before cooking. Water may also be contaminated with organisms that cause illness.
Symptoms:-
If you have food poisoning, chances are it won’t go undetected. Common cases of food poisoning will typically include at least three of the following symptoms:
• abdominal cramps
• diarrhea
• vomiting
• loss of appetite
• mild fever
• weakness
• nausea
• headaches
Symptoms of potentially life-threatening food poisoning include:
• diarrhea persisting for more than three days
• a fever higher than 101.5°F
• difficulty seeing or speaking
• symptoms of severe dehydration, which may include dry mouth, passing little to no urine, and difficulty keeping fluids down.

How Is Food Poisoning Diagnosed?
Food poisoning is diagnosed based on your symptoms. In severe cases, blood tests, stool tests, and tests on food that you have eaten may be conducted to determine what is responsible for the food poisoning.

Treatment:-
Food poisoning can usually be treated at home, and most cases will resolve within three to five days.
If you have food poisoning, it’s crucial to remain properly hydrated. Sports drinks high in electrolytes can be helpful with this. Fruit juice and coconut water can restore carbohydrates and help with fatigue.
Avoid caffeine, which may irritate the digestive tract. Decaffeinated teas with soothing herbs like lime juice, chamomile, peppermint, and may calm an upset stomach. Over-the-counter medications to control diarrhea and suppress nausea. It’s also important for those with food poisoning to get plenty of rest.
In severe cases of food poisoning, individuals may require hydration with intravenous (IV) fluids at a hospital. In the very worst cases of food poisoning, a longer hospitalization may be required while the individual recovers.
Prevention is better than cure:-
The best way to prevent food poisoning is to handle your food safely and to avoid any food that may be unsafe. Some foods are more likely to cause of food poisoning because of the way they’re produced and prepared. Meat, poultry, eggs, and shellfish may harbor infectious agents that are killed during cooking. If these foods are eaten in their raw form, not cooked properly, or if hands and surfaces are not cleaned after contact, food poisoning can occur.
Other foods that have are likely to cause food poisoning include:
• sushi and other fish products that are served raw or undercooked
• deli meats and hot dogs that are not heated or cooked
• ground beef, which may contain meat from several animals
• unpasteurized milk, cheese, and juice
• raw, unwashed fruits and vegetables
Always wash your hands before cooking or eating food. Make sure that your food is properly sealed and stored. Thoroughly cook meat and eggs. Anything that comes in contact with raw products should be sanitized before using it to prepare other foods. Make sure to always wash fruits and vegetables before serving.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda
Out of the 8 veda – Ayurveda is a subject of Atharva- Veda, which is a part of Rigveda. This deals with the science of living – life and all that involves in living.
Philosophy of Ayurveda
Man is a miniature of Universe, a ‘microcosm’ of a macrocosm. The material contents of man and universe are constituted of the five primal elements – Air, Space (the orfices and empty spaces inside the body), Fire (body heat, digestive fire, etc), Water (Liquid in various forms – plasma, blood, sweat, urine, secretion of glands, etc), Earth (solid component).
Ayurveda emphasizes prevention of disease, rejuvenation of body systems and extension of life span. Ayurveda provides an integrated approach to preventing and treating illness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies. It is on the view that the elements, forces and principles that comprise the nature, hold it together and perform function – the same is in human system. In Ayurveda the mind or consciousness and the body or physique, not only influence each other – they are each other. There can be no mental health without physical health and vice versa. In Ayurveda mental thoughts or feelings are the same as signs and symptoms of the disease of the physical body. Both are due to imbalances within a person and both are treated by restoring the natural balance mentally and physically.
Doshas – somatic humors
A ‘Dosha’ is a humour that regulates the human body. Vata, Pitta and Kapha, the three somatic humours, are called ‘tridoshas’ because of their predisposition to vitiation for a variety of reasons. ‘Dosha’ connotes fault or error. These humours, which originate from the Pancha Maha Bhutas (five great elements), regulate all the functions of the human body. Vata – Air & Space, Pitta – Fire & Water, Kapha – Earth & Water.
Though they pervade the whole system, each humour tends to dominate a particular part of the body. The Vata is responsible for the lower part, the Pitta for the middle portion and Kapha for the upper part.
Dhatus – Body Tissues
The word ‘Dhatu’ can also be used to mean ‘body tissue’. When used in this sense there are seven and these are called ‘Saptadhatus’. These body tissues are formed from and nourished by the essence of food. Plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow and semen/ova are the seven kinds of Dhatus. Each dhatu is believed to be a metabolic refinement of the previous one.
Malas – Body Waste
Stools/faeces, urine and sweat are the three excretory products of the body.
Defination of Health in Ayurveda
Health is defined as soundness of body, mind and self. The equilibrium of the three somatic humors (vata/pitta/kapha), the normalcy of formation and function of the body tissues, the normal excretion of the body waste, the normal function of the sensory organs including the brain, the normal function of the body organs, system and body part, a state of pleasant mind is a state of Health. This is a broader definition of health, and no other system than Ayurveda has emphasized in depth the body function and state of mind in contributing towards health.
Ayurvedic diet specification
If diet is wrong, medicines are of no use and if diet is correct, there is no need of medicine – such is the importance of diet in Ayurveda. We are What we Eat and Health is in our own Hands.
De-toxification
The formation of impurities is due to improper digestion which causes the system to absorb molecules of undigested food – toxins. They block the channels and causes imbalance in the system, organs and the function of the five element causing disease. Five types of purification methods are conducted to remove the cause of the disease called as Panchakarma.
Ayurveda purification procedure – Panchakarma
It has now been scientifically shown that a natural purification treatment can successfully eliminate environmentally toxic substances such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB’s) and pesticides from the body, without damaging side effects.
Most of the toady’s environmental toxins are lipophils that accumulate in the fatty tissues of the body. These fat-soluble toxins are associated with a range of diseases such as hormone disruption, immune system suppression, allergies, diseases of the liver and skin, various types of cancer, neurological illness, reproductive disorders and deformities.
Panchakarma Treatment – Several modalities in the Ayurveda detoxification procedure use non-toxic, lipophilic materials, such as clarified butter in the oleation phase and herbalized sesame oil in the massage and enema treatments. These traditional methods are believed to sequentially loosen and remove lipid soluble toxicants from their deposited sites and stimulate their elimination.
Vamana – Use of Emetics
Virecana – Use of laxatives
Basti – Medicated Enema
Nasya – Nasal administration
Rakta Mokshana – Blood letting are five types of Purifications Treatment.
Rasayana – Rejuvenation
Destressing, Detoxifying & Rejuvenation Therapy
De-stressing- This treatment is concerned with all ailments relating to mind and body, most often stress is a mental rather than a physical problem.
Detoxifying – The best form of treatment as far as detoxifying is concerned is Panchakarma, which .includes five types of treatment to detoxify the individual.
Aim of Rasayana
The rasayana or rejuvenation therapy aims at keeping the enzymes in the tissue cells in their normal functioning condition. These cells are to be revitalized and their composition has to be changed. The tranquility of the mind has to be promoted and the nerves as well as bones are to be kept soft and sooth. This prevents the process of ageing and makes the individual free from any disease even during an advanced age. He will be able to see things like before and the sharpness of hearing and vision continues. The glow in his face and the color of his skin remains as before.

Stress Management

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Stress is a demanding situation where an individual is struggling to cope-up to the expectation. It can be psychological, financial emotional, social, biological or constitutional. A highly efficient or capable individual may also be stressed if the situation demands more than his limits. Stress essentially originates at the level of mind and emotions and percolates down bringing imbalances at physical body level.
Stress Management: Ayurveda believes that there are only two controllable factors for health and disease – Ahara (food) and Vihara (life style). Life style means the routines including sleeping pattern, exercises, nature of work, habits, bath, etc. Food and routines planned according to the individual constitution (prakruthi) and health status help to prevent possible health problems and to improve the sense of well-being.
Ear Healthy Live Healthy
Good health is not an upshot of fortune, but fairly something, one can accomplish through hale and hearty lifestyles. The role of nutrition in maintaining health and to thwart disease is a hot topic of tete-a tete, nowadays.
BALANCED DIET
A balanced diet is one that comprises the exact blend of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and ample quantity of vitamins and minerals. It also contributes the precise quantity of calories to meet with ones energy requirements. Furthermore, it supplies adequate fiber and water to enable efficient functioning of the digestive system. The key to health eating is a sundry nutritional regime with accent on ample fluids, high – fiber carbohydrates, a moderate consumption of fats, sufficient protein and adequate sum of vitamins and minerals. However, no single food can provide all the nutrients that one requires. Even, the intake of two or three varieties may not satisfy all the energy requirements. The optimal strategy is to eat as many different kinds of naturally occurring foods
Many statistical studies prove that dietary factors possess a salient role in instigating cancer. The finest statistical correlation, derived from population surveys, is between dietary fat and several cancers. It becomes evident that the incidence of cancer is relatively high in countries where fat and low-fiber intake is high, compared to others. Certain food additive like nitrites, used to preserve meat is a proven factor for the causation of caner. Likewise, benzopyrene, a substance found on charred surfaces is also a known cancer causing dietary factor. So resorting to dietary fiber (unrefined foods), Vit. C rich foods (orange, gooseberry, guava etc.) Vit. A rich foods (green leafy vegetables, carrot etc.) and avoidance of high fats (red meat, egg yolk etc) would definitely reduce the risk of cancer.
TIPS FOR A HEALTHY DIET
• Avoid too much fat.
• Change to low-fat milk
• Cut-out butter, egg yolk, ghee etc.
• Switch on to vegetable oils (sunflower oil, safflower oil etc.)
• Avoid red meat (beef, mutton, pork etc.)
• Remove skin of poultry when cooking, as it contains much fat.
• Grill or bake food rather than frying.
• Avoid refined foods.
• Opt for fiber-rich complex carbs (whole grain products, brown rice etc.)
• Drink plenty of water (8-10 glasses daily)
• Include more fresh fruits and vegetables in daily diet.
• Eat when hungry; tackle your appetite cues.
